This round of qualifiers features 4 teams: Invictus Gaming, LGD, EHOME, and Newbee who you might remember as the winning team in The Invitational 2015.
Giving wings to a new competitive gaming format, the first Red Bull Battle Grounds: Dota 2 invitational tournament circuit will culminate in a one-day grand final on May 10th at San Francisco’s legendary venue, The Warfield Theatre. The road to this revered stage – and the $75K base line prize purse (this prize pool is now over $80,000 as of this writing)- will pit 20 invited professional teams, representing the best of the best from five regions around the world, against each other for a competitive sprint to the grand finals in this global tournament. Tickets are on sale now and start at $34.61 for General Admission Balcony seats.
